The Naked Chef indeed! Celebrity cook Jamie Oliver recalls the ‘painful’ time he burnt his manhood while cooking in the nude for his wife Jools
Jamie Oliver has been affectionately known as ‘The Naked Chef’ for decades, in reference to his use of simple and inexpensive ingredients in his recipes.
But on Tuesday, the British culinary star revealed how he once tried to live up to his name and whip up a meal in the nude to impress his wife Jools – with disastrous results.
Speaking to KIIS 106.5’s Will and Woody, the 46-year-old recalled to host Woody Whitelaw how he had scolded his penis while cooking fish on a date with his partner 20 years earlier.

‘I did a whole roasted sea bass, and I thought the coolest thing to do as The Naked Chef, would be to serve it naked,’ he said.
‘The only thing I was wearing was a bow on the end of it. A red bow, to be specific – I tied it, and it was a double knot. I opened the oven, and checked the seabass halfway through…’
The audio on the call then cut out, but Jamie reappeared moments later to reveal the climax of the story.
‘When I went to check, what I imagine was a perfect laser shot of steam attacked my penis,’ he candidly said.

‘The pain for us men of – let’s just say a ‘mid-range penis size’ – was a hard pain to explain, as it was the worst pain of the world yet what happened was one of the most beautiful things I ever saw.’
As a bewildered host Woody asked: ‘What do you mean, because it swelled up?’ Jamie laughed: ‘Yeah mate, what’s your problem? Do you want me to draw you a picture? It’s not rocket science!’
Revealing Jools’ response, he added: ‘She turns up, and I’m sat down on what was a very nice vintage leather seat with frozen Green Giant peas on my penis.
Hilarious: ‘I did a whole roasted sea bass, and I thought the coolest thing to do as the Naked Chef, would be to serve it naked,’ he said
‘I was obviously very distressed, and she thought I was stupid and ridiculous. But ultimately, it’s all about caring and I had tried, had made the effort.’
He urged the host to ‘go all out’ and be romantic when cooking for a partner, but warned: ‘Don’t do it naked. It doesn’t work. It’s not worth it.’
